People need to settle down. If they go to arbitration my guess is they settle for 3.5-3.8 mill for 2 years. I can live with that and I think both sides will be happy. If we had the money still that we gave to helm and paid him 5-6 mill a year, this site would have had a meltdown also. Let it play out.
This list is a joke, just a few "rankings" that baffle:
Arizona - 7th
Buffalo - 9th
Winnipeg - 10th
Chicago - 12th
Toronto - 13th
Carolina - 14th
Anaheim - 19th
LA - 20th
So according to this, the management teams of Anaheim and LA are not at the level of teams such as Arizona, Buffalo, and Winnipeg as those teams just ooz of success. This list seem to have a bias towards teams that tank. In what world is Chicago (as much as I hate them) ranked lower the Arizona???
Perhaps fans aren't happy about giving up a 1st rounder on a rental just to be knocked out 1st round. But I still see your point.
